About the Show

Our unlikely hero, Bilbo Baggins, would much rather be sitting in his cozy Hobbit Hole with a cup of tea and a plate of bacon and eggs. However, he somehow finds himself on a magically mystical adventure. Staged with speed and surprises, you’ll be delighted as things change before your very eyes. Discover what happens as Bilbo travels on an epic journey over freezing mountains and a frightening forest, meeting all sorts of fierce creatures—some who want to eat him, others who turn into dear friends.

  • This famous story was made into a movie in recent years, and is now a live performance. What do you think will be different in a live performance than seeing a movie?
  • In this story, Bilbo Baggins is on a journey to achieve one goal, but along the way comes across something (a ring) that becomes a major goal in a future story (Lord of the Rings). In school, we have experiences that seem small in the moment but can become important later on. What is an example of this that you can imagine?
  • There are various groups of people (elves, dwarves, goblins etc) trying to achieve their goals, but constantly argue and fight along the way. Why do you think people struggle to work together in a positive way?
